25 books every Christian should read
In 25 Books Every Christian Should Read, Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Chris Webb, and a diverse editorial board of authors and speakers have identified the most helpful and historic books for Christian discipleship and created a resource that helps us make the most of them. It does include excerpts from each book just like Renovaré’s much used Devotional Classics, and 25 Books is designed to even more so help readers work through the most important books for formation in Christlikeness. From Augustine’s Confessions to Thomas Kelley’s A Testament of Devotion, this list and this resource will lead you on a journey of discipleship that few in the history of the Church have experienced. HarperOne, softcover, 400 pages.
25 Books includes in each chapter:
• a thorough overview of the title
• insight into why it is an essential classic
• guidance for your reading
• an extended excerpt
• a Study Guide for each excerpt and book
• a list and annotated bibliography of vital contemporary authors
